Our summer 2024 production is The Railway Children by E Nesbit on 18th - 20th July 2024.

This is a stage adaptation of E. Nesbit's much-loved children's classic ‘The Railway Children’. It is a story of a prosperous Edwardian family at the turn of the 20th century – a mother and three children – who are forced into an isolated and impoverished existence in the rural north of England, after the family is forced to move from London to a house near a railway, because the father, who works at the Foreign Office, is imprisoned after being falsely accused of spying. The story is then set in and around this country railway station and follows the plight of the railway children in grappling with their new environment, capturing the anxieties and exhilarations of childhood and growing up with great tenderness and insight.

The children cope with their adverse circumstances by forming a bond with their new home and community. They develop a deep love for the nearby railway and the children forge friendships with the railway employees, having many adventures along the way.

This classic story is imaginatively brought to life while losing nothing of the original spirit of humour, tension, adventure and the final triumph of good over evil. It is a story of an Edwardian England on the brink of change, and, of course, a story of the Golden Age of Steam Railways
